10 year old birth
A 10 year old girl from the Wayuu tribe in Colombia gave birth to a five and half pound baby, after going to a hospital earlier this week due to heavy bleeding and pain. What also adds to the surprise is that the girl never saw a doctor from the start of her pregnancy. The girl’s identity is unknown as well as who fathered the child’s child.
The Wayuu tribe is immune to some Colombian laws and has had other girls reported pregnant before naturally expected.
We’ve already seen several cases [of pregnancy] in girls of the Wayuu ethnicity
